Personal Needs and Boundaries

A Reasonable Balance

“There are reasons to set boundaries for yourself, but there are also reasons to keep doors open.” – Ashley Graham

The Offensive Defense

“Much of the time, the things we feel guilty about are not our issues. Another person behaves inappropriately or in some way violates our boundaries. We challenge the behavior, and the person gets angry and defensive. Then we feel guilty.” – Melody Beattie

Resist the Urge

“The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.” – Dorothy Nevill

Questions with No Answers

“Indeed, the only truly serious questions are ones that even a child can formulate. Only the most naive of questions are truly serious. They are the questions with no answers. A question with no answer is a barrier that cannot be breached. In other words,, it is questions with no answers that set the limits of human possibilities, describe the boundaries of human existence.” – Milan Kundera

What do you Stand For?

“Staying silent is like a slow growing cancer to the soul. There is nothing intelligent about not standing up for yourself. You may not win every battle. However, everyone will at least know what you stood for – YOU.” – Shannon L. Alder

Clear Cut

“Use strong boundaries to limit your exposure to unnecessary negativity in life. Learn to say ‘No’ and ‘No More.’ You deserve peace.” – Akiroq

I’m Not Sorry

“If you spend your life sparing people’s feelings and feeding their vanity, you get so you can’t distinguish what should be respected in them.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

Quality Control

“It is necessary, and even vital, to set standards for your life and the people you allow in it.” – Mandy Hale

Fine Line

“Boundaries are the lines we draw that mark off our autonomy and that of other people, that protect our privacy and that of others. Boundaries allow for intimate connection without dissolving or losing one’s sense of self.” – Amy Bloom

Built to Last

Boundaries are basically about providing structure, and structure is essential in building anything that thrives. – Henry Cloud   How Happy Whole Human are you? Click here to take the quiz!
